8.  "60 Sites in 60 Minutes," Presentation by Robert J. Ambrogi at ABA TechShow 2004, March 26, 2004: ("Well, are lawyers funny? That's the big question. There's a website that attempts to answer that question, called LawHumor.com. (Clip from 'Rainmaker Reindeer' plays.) This is from 'The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album.' Larry Savell is a lawyer in New York City, and he writes humor columns. He has put out an actual album, 'The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album.' He's got this actually kind of funny site, he's got a lot of his humor columns, he's got .MP3 clips, and he's got little games on here like 'LawHumor Hangman' and 'Arrange The Exhibits' and he's got a whole other page of little java games that you can play. (Laughter.) He attempts to make law funny.") (Listen to the segment.)  See http://www.abanet.org/techshow/60sitesHOF/60sites04.html: LawHumor.com listed first among four legal humor websites.  See also http://www.legaline.com/60sites.htm: LawHumor.com listed first among four legal humor websites.
9.  "The Best Legal Websites to Help You and Your Clients," Robert Ambrogi, Rockport, MA, Indiana Bar Association Solo & Small Firm Conference, June 4, 2004, http://www.inbar.org/content/pdf/GP2004/Best_Legal_Websites_to_Help_You_and_Your_Clients.pdf: LawHumor.com listed first among four legal humor websites.
10.  "Laughing at Lawyers and the Law," Robert J. Ambrogi, Law Technology News, July 2004, at 48-49: A discussion of LawHumor.com leads off a review of legal humor websites: "LAW is serious stuff. But don't tell that to New York lawyer Lawrence Savell, for fear he might abandon his endlessly entertaining site, LawHumor.com, www.lawhumor.com. Savell dedicates his site 'to the proposition that zealous representation of clients and furtherance of the public good can be only enhanced by a healthy willingness to poke fun at ourselves appropriately on occasion.' And poke fun he does, through humorous articles, music, comics and even games. Consider, for example, 'Law Review: A Love Story,' a lawyer love story written in the style of a law review, complete with footnotes. Listen to excerpts from Savell's recording, 'The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album,' featuring songs such as 'Santa v. Acme Sleigh' and 'Rainmaker Reindeer.' Check out Savell's Typo-Man comic book. Play games including 'Law Humor Hangman' and 'Arrange the Exhibits.' You could kill a lot of otherwise billable time at LawHumor.com. But then you'd be missing out on the many other sites devoted to making lawyers laugh - or to laughing at lawyers."  Also posted on Law.com (http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1090180158017).
11.  "exec's dot...dot...dot..." (Executive Director's column), Citations (Ventura County (California) Bar Association), September 2004, at 18 http://www.vcba.org/citationsmag/2004/04sept.pdf: "Websites of the month: lawhumor.com." (first of two listed).
12.  "Insites (web)," Law Institute Journal (Victoria, Australia), November 2004, at 80, http://www.liv.asn.au/journal/current/78-11-Nov2004-insites.html: review by Law Institute Library: "This month . . . We also look at a law humour site that will get you smiling . . . LawHumour.com http://www.LawHumour.com[.]  It took a long time to review LawHumour.com because I got stuck playing LawHumour Hangman. If you don’t get the word out after several tries, a Donald Trump-like message flashes up stating, 'You’re fired. Send Resume'. Move over lunchtimes spent playing Blackjack on the computer, LawHumour.com has enough games, articles and music to keep you going into billable time. Maintained by New York lawyer, Lawrence Savell, it will appeal to anyone in the legal industry (despite the American slant). If an article entitled, 'Lawyers (Allegedly) at Leisure' or the adventures of Typo-Man sound intriguing, you too will become engrossed."  Discussed further in same issue in "Holidaze! Celebrate!," "With all due respect" column, November 2004, at 96, http://www.liv.asn.au/journal/current/78-11-Nov2004-With.html: "It turns out Mr Savell’s humorous streak is not confined to music. He also has a website, http://www.Law Humor.com, where he says you can find 'lawyer computer games, a love story in the form of a law review article, a law-related comic book, and even a free and always-immediately-responsive computerised legal advice generator'. Coincidentally, the website is reviewed in this edition of the LIJ in 'Insites' (page 81) where it gets the thumbs up."
13.  "Need a chuckle?," The Reporter (Valparaiso University School of Law Library), July 2005, at 5 http://jury.lel.net/library/libraryinfo/reporterjuly2005.pdf: "http://www.lawhumor.com has an impressive list of links to articles poking fun at lawyers and the law, many of them from respected publications such as the ABA Journal and the National Law Journal. This site also features a selection of legal parodies such as 'Nerds in a Mass,' sung to the tune of 'Barbara Ann' about taking the bar exam; and 'The Time for Cramming,' sung to the tune of 'The Sounds of Silence.'" (fourth of ten legal humor sites listed).
14.  "WEBSITE OF THE WEEK[:] Lawyer humor nearly catches up with library humor," WarriorLibrarian.com, October 2005: "Despite Lawrence Savell's website [link provided to LawHumor.com] opening with audio of dubious intent, the rest of the content could be awarded various accolades concerning originality, a deviation from the stereotype, and of course downright rib-tickling funny. The Law Librarian fraternity would certainly appreciate the not excessively subtle allusions on the site that states it is 'dedicated to the proposition that zealous representation of clients and furtherance of the public good can be only enhanced by a healthy willingness to poke fun at ourselves appropriately on occasion'. In fact, it is almost on a par with Warrior Librarian. But apart from that, it's pretty good ..."
